About Transverse Myelitis

Transverse Myelitis, also known as myelitis, transverse, is related to neuromyelitis optica and antiphospholipid syndrome. An important gene associated with Transverse Myelitis is AQP4 (Aquaporin 4), and among its related pathways/superpathways are T-cell activation SARS-CoV-2 and Spinal cord injury. The drugs Interferon beta-1a and Mitoxantrone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include spinal cord, brain and medulla oblongata, and related phenotypes are nervous system and immune system

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Transverse Myelitis

Transverse myelitis is an autoimmune disease that often affects the body's immune system, causing pain, inflammation and fatigue. People with transverse myelitis may lose immune system function and must take steps to protect their health. The following are some lifestyle options suitable for people with transverse myelitis:

1. Maintain adequate sleep time: Adequate sleep time can help the immune system recover and reduce disease symptoms.

2. Maintain a healthy diet: A healthy diet can help the body maintain the function of the immune system. It is recommended to eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, protein and healthy fats.

3. Avoid infection: Patients with transverse myelitis are susceptible to bacterial and viral infections, so they must take preventive measures, such as washing hands frequently, wearing masks, and avoiding contact with patients with the disease.

4. Maintain appropriate exercise: Moderate exercise can improve immune system function and reduce disease symptoms, but strenuous exercise and prolonged standing should be avoided.

5. Maintain body moisture: Lack of water in the body will lead to a decline in the function of the immune system, so adequate water intake must be maintained to maintain normal body functions.

6. Follow the doctor's treatment recommendations: In the case of transverse myelitis, patients need to follow the doctor's treatment recommendations, including medication, physical therapy, and rehabilitation plans.

7. Maintain mental health: transverse myelitis can cause mental stress and anxiety, so patients need to take measures to maintain mental health, such as psychotherapy, listening to music, reading, walking, etc.
